It’s not too long until the August bank holiday and how ever your planning to spent it, we hope you have a great time, but things don’t always go to plan. From hay fever to a sprained knee, we know that it is all too easy for you or someone you love to pick up a health concern. That’s why it’s so important to know where to go for help.

There’s information on what pharmacies are open and when and a reminder that a GP will be on hand at Orsett Hospital’s Minor Injuries Unit. There will also be extra GP and nurse appointments at the Thurrock Health Hubs and even a physiotherapist at the Fobbing Hub!
